candidates not panning out so well like linda in hawaii and heather wilson in new mexico. i think it's about a 40% chance of republicans taking a majority. but i think it's going to be a lot of one-two point races so that i would not be surprised if wednesday lunchtime we may not be positive. remember, six years ago the last time this group of senate seelts were up you had missouri, montana, and virginia still up for grabs. and that was the majority of the senate. and in those three states, senator editor figured this out, 4.8 million people voted in those three states and those three states were decided by 60,600 total votes and there was the majority of the senate. i think we could be in that kind of situation. but basically once you moved nebraska the nelson open seat from the democratic side to the republican side that's a done deal. basically, republican seats, three if they win the white house or two if they win the white house, three if they don't if nebraska's moved over and you have five democratic toss-ups, five republican toss-ups. and keep in mind that those last group

of new mexico, we established lottery scholarships which allowed really any graduating high school student from new mexico to go to college with those costs paid. so woths what's the federal role, though, when it comes to education, and what's the primary reason in this country why college division tuition is so high? well, it is because of guaranteed government student loans that because of guaranteed government student loans, no one has the excuse for not going to education. and so because of that, institutions of higher learning, colleges and universities are immune from pricing that if kids would take a harder look at it, gee, i don't think i can afford $15,000 a semester, i think i will just sit this one out. when that happens en masse, i guarantee you, the cost of college tuition will drop dramatically. today that doesn't exist. i can't afford $15,000, yet friends and family will point and say, look, you can get a guaranteed government student loan. that is another one of government's unintended consequences that have college tuition at such a high rate.
